Setting up a new aquarium is always fun, and while you may get impatient to get the tank started, sometimes it’s better to wait. The reasoning behind that is mostly about timing. Life is busy at pretty much any stage, but there are those moments of downtime that are better for setting up an aquarium. If you start a tank while you’re in the middle of other projects, then your tank build may not get off the ground as intended. If you wait until the right moment, however, you will have far more luck in establishing a duly functioning system.
